In Los Angeles, he hosts the morning show for 102.7 KIIS-FM; he took over Rick Dees just less than a year ago. He used to be a DJ for Star 98.7 here; so in LA, he's been well-known even before he became a part of American Idol.

for you conspiracy buffs out there, i heard that last night, the contestants were NOT doing their usual thing of flashing their number with their hands, but instead only mimed "vote for me". can someone with a recording confirm this?

Slightly off topic.. Did anyone see "South Park" tonight? They tore up American Idol and Contender, actually Sly was the best part of the episode. They made his voice out to require a translator.

The point of tonight's South Park was discussing how shows like this make people out to be money and ratings and slaves to the TV and treat them like garbage.

Some of them were still doing the motions with their hands.

Is anyone experiencing lip sync problems with American Idol on D*? It was practically unwatchable last night for me. I thought I had read earlier that others were experiencing the same thing. One week it's okay and then the following week it isn't. Does FOXENG know anything about this?

DeanS - I had a problem on Ch. 88 on D* about two weeks ago - the first night they went to the big studio w/ 12 finalists . Are you watching on Fox- HD East or West? The problem on the East feed didn't show up this week. Thank goodness.

OK, which one of you sent Mikalah that T-shirt she was wearing last night?

BTW, her mother looks just as annoying as she is. I think this is one time I'd pass on a mother-daugther threesome!

I live in L.A. so I'm receiving the Fox HD West feed on D*. At first the lip sync issue was with "24" - filmed based content - and not "Idol." Now it's the other way around. Very frustrating....

I loved her T-shirt last night... it shows she has a sense of humor about herself. For those who didn't watch, it said "My job is to annoy you".

Don't forget to set your TIVO for an extra five minutes. The show went over last week.

Mikalah is an annoying cross between Fran Drescher and Barbara Streisand.

she better be cut :mad:

uggh this thing has fans...

let's see how many annoying comments she makes tonight

still playing tricks I see, but that one was dumb, because there's no way anwar is ever gonna be in the bottom 3

didn't risk having her swear again by tricking her, but no need to, because it's so obvious she's gone :) :)

Those who are having the lip sync issue. We (DTV) have our engineers looking into the problem it may or not be a provider issue.

Kind of surprising Nadia in the bottom three... I typically vote for Carrie once a week, but I felt so bad about Jessica (who has become my #2 favorite after three of four strong performances) being in the bottom three last week that I voted for her three times last night. I'm sure it helped :)

Well, no surprise that Mikalah got the boot. What's surprising is that it didn't happen last week.

What do y'all think? Carrie, Jessica, and Bo for the top 3. Carrie takes the top prize. Not sure if #2 goes to Bo or Jessica. The other seven are all "OK", but none even come close to any of the top 3.

I'm buying Carrie's album as soon as it comes out. Not only is she pleasing to listen to, she's also very easy on the eyes.

Didn't surprise me. I was surprised about Anthony. He didn't do anything spectacular, but he didn't do anything bad either, except that one note.

Oh and the Vonzell/Brandy comparison. I don't know about that, but Vonzell is a very pretty woman.

Going by the odds here (click on Entertainment followed by American Idol) the top three, in order, but all in close competition, will be:

Anwar Robinson

Carrie Underwood

Bo Bice


The rest of the pack are far behind, with only Nadia Turner having a remote chance. The rest will be gone shortly.

The site has been 100% accurate to date.

If I was buying an album to actually listen to it would be Bo's. He's the most "reality" I've seen on network tv for a loong time. As Simon said he's already made it. Polish, great sound and not a cookie cutter "idol" type (keep the hair man...Simon should grow some ...might help). Carrie was certainly my first favorite but as Bo shows versatility he's walking away with it. He reminds me of a young Bob Seger. The competition should be really great from here. Mistakes and all this weeks show(s) was great. I'm happy there is no heavy rap noise to sit through.
